Report launched in November 2018
The ninth edition of our Financial Benchmarking for Professional Bodies report is based on two years (2016-17) of financial and organisational data from over 400 professional bodies in the UK!
This report is an important tool for planning, evaluating and directing your organisation's financial activities now and in the future.
This report can help your professional body to identify significant differences between your performance and that of the sector - an important first step towards making improvements.
This year the report also contains a chapter dedicated to investments governance in professional bodies, focusing on the complex set of returns expected by their members who form a varied body of stakeholders.
This report is also available to purchase as a bound hard copy.
